VIDEOS
"Go To Paris" by Karmina
 
I was commissioned to create a lyric video for the Venice, CA-based band Karmina. I wanted to create a lyric video that incorporated hand-drawn images as well as handmade objects, loosely basing each lyrical line to the sentiment of going to Paris.
"Con Legno"
 
The term con legno is a term used with bowed, stringed instruments where the player hits the strings with the wood of the bow instead of the hairs. I wanted the visual aspect of the video to aid in those who may otherwise not be familiar with notation and classical music in general.
"Grand Things"
 
.I wrote this song some time ago and performed it in NoHo, CA with some of my good friends backing me up.
"I Married a Method Actor" by Dominique Generaux
 
Music created for a short comedy pilot.
"Quartet Two, mvmt 4"
 
Some performance footage of one of the string quartet recording sessions for the Kickstarter album Opus One.
Kickstarter Video
 
In 2013 I successfully raised $10K to write, record and publish an album of my own chamber music. This video was created to help raise those funds.
